You are NOT a problem to fix, or a diagnosis.
YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE.
You are a unique individual who has been facing challenges.
No matter how far from radiant and confident you feel... I believe in your ability to become who you know you truly are at your core.
No matter how many doctors, therapists & healing journeys you've been through, there is so much possibility for you and I believe you and I can do things differently.
Let's create space together to let the past
stop taking over the present.
How Can I Support You?
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I support clients with:
processing turbulent and overwhelming emotions
living with Anxiety / Depression
processing Trauma & developing resiliency
building fierce self-compassion & Self-Esteem
creating a new relationship to food & body image
coping with the emotional side of Chronic Pain & Illness
Sex, Love & Relationship issues
I practice Mindfulness-Based Somatic Counseling which is different from traditional "talk therapy."
My style is holistic: we tend to the mind, body, and spirit. Instead of traditional "talk-therapy" where you come in and repeat your stories over and over, we also pay attention to how your body physically carries the past experiences of your life. When you learn how to experience your emotions in your body (instead of just think about them), it makes it much easier to regulate them and have choice around how to respond to them.
In the first three to six months, I ask for a weekly commitment to get a solid foundation under you where your whole body and mind feel like they have a place to rest, be seen, and truly supported. The intention is to have a healing experience where you begin to embody the care, compassion, attention and safety that you may have not received at certain points in the past.
Rates & Insurance
Sessions are $120/50-minute hour.
Payments of the full fee are due at time of session by cash or check. I do not accept insurance and I do not currently bill insurance companies directly, but am happy to provide you with a receipt which you can send to your insurance company for them to reimburse you. It can be helpful to check with your insurance company first to see if they cover my services: I am considered an out-of-network provider for many companies.
I Welcome You
I welcome clients of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, sexual-orientations, communities, and spiritual traditions to my therapy practice. Let's start by getting to know each other in a short consultation to see if we're a good match.
